An Open Letter to Sam Pepper

lacigreen:

Hi Sam!

Thanks for taking the time to read this letter. As fellow YouTubers, we have much respect for others who put so much hard work into building their channel. It’s not easy, and you should be proud! That said, we’ve noticed that in your success, there has been a lack of respect in…

To those who have "no sympathy" because "suicide is selfish"

From personal experience, I can say that yes, suicide IS selfish, but depression is a selfish illness - because all you can feel is nothing.

I’m bipolar. We’ve known since I was a kid. But my depressive episodes can get really really bad sometimes.

My earliest memory of suicidal thoughts was…

This. This, on so many levels. And I want to add to this too.

My story with depression may not be the same as my friend Cassie’s, but I can understand where she’s coming from with this blog post. To whoever reads this, I’m not going to bore/entertain you with my own story, because it’s not something I openly talk about anymore. However, I do have this to say:

Yes, I also agree, it’s pretty selfish of me to feel that life isn’t worth living anymore, and I can confirm what Cassie says about people trying to “fix” you, having attempted so many times in the past. Except, depression isn’t something that you can simply “fix.” My feelings and emotions aren’t “broken,” because they are mine. By attempting to anyone the right TO feel anything is also a little selfish, because they are not YOUR feelings and emotions to “fix”.

If you know someone who is going through depression, or if someone has tried to reach out to you, the last thing that person wants to hear is how “selfish” they are, because you’re just being hypocritical.

(Also, if someone is reaching out to you, don’t laugh at them either. Don’t then try to cover up your insensitivity with a thinly-veiled excuse. And don’t then tell everyone that they’re “attention-seeking” when they realise what a jerk you are and want nothing to do with you anymore.)

Yesterday, I wrote a song inspired by my childhood home and, honestly I think it’s the best original song I’ve written. So, I did a little demo to share with you guys, and I’d love your feedback on it.

But please bear in mind that this was recorded in my bedroom with incredibly amateur equipment.

Lyrics:

Beyond the end of the road
There’s a place I’m welcome, no matter how long I’ve been gone
It’s like a guardian, standing watch over me
It’s not much but it’s home 

Sealed away in these four walls
Are memories of childhood days that I played away
I think back on them now, with a smile on my face
It’s not much but it’s home 

This place always kept me safe
Even on those I days I couldn’t go on
It never judged me for the mistakes I made
It’s not much but it’s home 

But all good things must come to an end
As it shrank into the distance, I tried not to look back
But I could not ignore how much it meant to me
It’s not much but it’s home 

And, oh, it’s been oh so long
Since I stood here in front of where I know I can belong
Everything has changed and yet this place is still the same
Tonight, oh tonight, I’m coming home
Tonight, I’m coming home 

Sounds like a pretty good role model to me

Sounds like a pretty good role model to me

Grammar was invented for a reason, people

Because some boys like to be different girls every once in a while…
